New favorite time waster:

cowboykiller:

Reading one star Yelp reviews of NY museums.

On MoMA: “6 floors, 4 good works of art.”

On The Cloisters: “The collection is decent and perhaps the best you’re going to get this side of Europe, but most of it is imported. If you’re ok with that, then by all means enjoy.”

And my favorite, from the Museum of Natural History: “Fake fake fake…everything is fake!!! What a waste of money and time.” 

TOO MANY FAKE DINOSAURS. THEY WANTED A REAL WHALE.

(I want a real whale.)

And lastly, re: my place of employment: “No famous paintings.”

I just

I can’t

I CAN’T

I’M SO SORRY THE CLOISTERS COULDN’T GET ANY MEDIEVAL ART FROM AMERICA FOR YOU, YELP REVIEWER.

The literature: Jennifer Egan’s A VISIT FROM THE GOON SQUAD (requested by ladydei)

The libation: For this fragmented novel (or is it a cohesive collection of linked short stories), we’re serving you a deconstructed Bloody Mary (or is it another cocktail entirely?). Much like the book, it is exacting and requires your attention, but is ultimately rewarding.

Infuse 2oz good vodka with three (3) peppercorns overnight. Procure 1oz celery juice through whatever methods you must, but tell no one how you came by it. Juice a lime for a total of 3/4oz juice (no more, no less).

Run the rind of the lime around the rim of a martini glass and dip the glass in tomato salt (in the future we will all have pocket food dehydrators - go to town on some tomatoes and mix with salt to taste). Shake all the liquid ingredients with ice 23.5 times and pour. Garnish with gold flakes (optional but recommended).

Powerpoints at the ready? Good. Bottoms up.
